I rebuilt my 84 5.0, small mods. I used my old carb and the car ran alright, but it couldnt keep up with the fuel demand. I replaced the carb, with a new Holly 750 but now it runs rich and didnt pass emssions

with the mods the holly 750 is whats needed. you never show your hand.
if you want help then you have to tell us what you got.

you said small mods, so reggie thought you meant close to stock.

i dont think anybody on here cares what mods you got. where not goin to go to colorado and race for big $$ because we know what mods u got.

Well also realize the 1984 carburetor wasn't even a 600 cfm and you stepped up 5 carb sizes. Unless you're packing a large stroker, have a nitrous system, or putting out nearly 400 hp, the 750 is too much. In fact, it doesn't matter what calculations were used to come to say a 750 was needed, the fact is it's too much for it if it's running rich. You need to back the carb size down, sizing down the jets won't take care of it.

Everyone here knows what everyone else has, so no need for the hidden secrets way of thinking. We can't properly help if we get just a fraction of the necessary information.

all were trying to say is you can tell us what you got. its not really worth asking a question if you dont tell the details on what you got.

I do race here in CO. sometime for $. I don't know what's considered "big $$". I hope I'm not the only one in CO. that enjoys this site. I post most commits on the site for general thoughts and second options.
